The band keeps me going I say. And I thank them for so much :D

Read the book this week - the style is similar to the Motley Crue one, in that it's a sequence of quotes to tell the story.

I enjoyed it, although I did feel it was uneven - quite detailed until about the third album, then we fly through the rest of the career in about 20 pages....

Ah, that's a shame. Personally even as a newer fan these last few years, I would hope all the albums had the same in depth attention.
But I still want the book.

In 1991 they did a Christmas show, I think at Rock City. Apparently they played a Queen medley as a tribute to Freddie. I have never heard it and have no idea if it exists. But if it does........

I wish there was audio/video of that show, I don't think it exists sadly.

I got to thinking. What an amazing twenty six years since Thunder started.

This is still quite good. Been playing it for a few hours now...




Question for the people who have attended a couple or more of their Xmas shows. Which one do you feel is best?
